second day 3x breathing cold shower extremities only - heat up phase wrapped in blanket, dozing off for some mins like after sauna. this time it took longer until the counter reaction of heat set in - still liking this the most.

Am I the only one that stands in the cold for like 15 minutes? o.O Maybe it's not the healthiest but I always feel supercharged after.

its because probably your water doesn’t get cold enough - you’re not the only one xD

@remember Lol funny you say that cuz that's what I tell to everyone else. Showers go so cold here in Iceland during winter months it's physically impossible to stand under them in the coldest setting. And I've done Icebaths multiple times, I'd say it feels about three times as cold as an Icebath. 

So, no it's not that. :D I just really like standing there imagining myself turning into a popsicle. 😂

@fridjonk well that sounds like you are already in the advanced level. its like if a kenyan stays in sauna for 45 minutes while doing some advanced sports and then going for a marathon like jogging wich also only takes him 45 mins. maybe like that.

by the way how many chili’s can you eat without crying?

Spot on, well it's not like I find it easy by any means.  Since I'm already in there for 5 minutes, why not stay a little longer. ^_^

50 seconds O.o, you can't even get used to the water in 50 seconds . Try 5 minutes at least

its not about this - its about how it feels - if you want a challenge learn to do splits. :ph34r: 

that‘s something that would be a real challenge with a positive outcome which also makes some sense.

Thanks for encouragement! 

Step by step, man. I haven't done cold showers for years, so I better start small.

@dimitri A good method that helps me ease in (easier than diving straight into cold shower out of bed or just sitting around for a while) is do them after breaking a sweat doing low to moderate intensity exercise in the morning. You will be nice and heated up and that initial shock isnt as bad, easy to keep deep breathing since you have already been breathing more intensely.

Thanks for the tips! I usually do it at the end of hot shower.

1 minute today 💪

Day 4. I've been feeling a lot of heat in my upper back throughout most of the day. Is it related in any way?

third day, the feel was a little different each day - did 3x breathings and held the breath with exhalated lungs for 2:30 mins (record is around 9 mins, and 24 mins with pure oxygen inhalation - wonder how they do that) after the third round. full body cold shower today + heat up phase. the heat feels different if cold water was applied only at the feet and arms or concentrates also in the chest area.

@Gili Trawangan pretty sure it is because of the breathing especially - for me during the heat up phase i also today had especially heat in the upper body. in some sense you are doing cardio vascular training without doing sports for it. could be interesting to do some heart chakra meditation or yoga alongside, as it is also a physical activation of anahata.
